SSI Benefits | North Carolina SSI Attorney

There is another federal financial assistance program beyond Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) known as Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSI is part of the Social Security Administration's (SSA) efforts to help elderly and disabled people who have little or no income. 

At Lloyd King Law Firm PLLC, I dedicate my practice to disabled persons who need Supplement Security Income. Contact my firm if you live in North Carolina and want to explore your options.  

My firm is dedicated to assisting individuals throughout the state who require financial aid due to age, disability, or blindness, and helping them receive the support they need to maintain their livelihoods. I represent individuals in Raleigh, Roanoke Rapids, Fayetteville, Greensboro, and beyond. 

A Deeper Dive Into SSI Benefits 

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is designed to provide financial assistance to eligible individuals who have limited income and resources. This federal program helps cover essential living costs, such as food, clothing, and shelter, for those who qualify.  

Unlike SSDI, SSI does not require a work history, making it accessible to a wider range of applicants. 

The goal of SSI is not just to provide financial help, but to ensure that the basic needs of the most vulnerable populations are met, thus enhancing their quality of life and offering a safety net for those who find themselves without other means of support. 

Are You Eligible for SSI? 

Unfortunately, not everyone who applies for SSI will be awarded benefits. In fact, many applications are denied, and a lot of time is exhausted to fight for these benefits. For some of you, that may have been time well-spent, but for many of you, it could have been time well-spent if you had an attorney to guide you through the process and prevent delays and other impediments that cost you time and money. 

To be eligible for SSI benefits, you must fulfill certain criteria, including being: 

  • Aged 65 years or older; 

  • Legally blind; or 

  • Disabled according to the Social Security Administration's definition. 

In addition, applicants must meet the following conditions: 

  • Be a U.S. citizen or an eligible non-citizen. 

  • Reside in one of the 50 states, Washington, D.C., or the Northern Mariana Islands. 

  • Not have been outside the U.S. for more than 30 consecutive days. 

  • Not be confined in a government-funded institution. 

  • Meet the specific income and resource limitations. 

Understanding and proving eligibility can be complex, which is why my legal team is here to help guide you through every step.

Frequently Asked Questions About SSI Benefits 

Can I work while receiving SSI benefits? 

Yes, you can work while receiving SSI benefits, but it’s important to understand how working and earning a wage can affect your eligibility for benefits. The Social Security Administration (SSA) has certain income limits in place, and if your income exceeds these limits, your SSI benefits may be reduced or even discontinued. There are also work incentives and exclusions that allow you to work without immediately losing your benefits. For more specific guidance based on your situation, consult with a legal expert. 

I've just moved to a different state. How does this affect my SSI benefits? 

SSI benefits can vary from state to state because some states add a supplementary state payment to the federal payment. Transferring your SSI benefits from one state to another requires notifying the Social Security Administration (SSA) of your change in address as soon as possible.  

How do I apply for SSI benefits for my child who is disabled? 

To apply for SSI benefits for a disabled child, you must provide the Social Security Administration with detailed information about the child's medical condition and how it affects their ability to function on a daily basis. The child must meet the SSA's definition of disability for children, and the household’s income and resources must fall within the SSA's eligibility limits.  

You can start the application process online or by contacting your local SSA office to set up an appointment to apply in person. Working with an attorney can help streamline this process and ensure you have all the necessary documentation and information.
